Golf Mat for Backyard With Grass


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm gonna buy a mat for my backyard, it has grass.

I need help deciding.

Anyone tried the 5 STAR 3' x 5' GORILLA Commercial Driving Range Golf Mats from Martin Hall?

I wanna practice with my spike shoes on it.

Thanks

5 Star Commercial Mats are easy on the wrists and elbows while still standing up to golfers of all levels. Our Commercial Driving Range Mats are a favorite with driving ranges and country clubs nationwide!

I know nothing about the mat.  Sorry.   What I do know is that the mat will take the contour of your lawn and if you don't have your lawn rolled flat you'll find that the mat won't be flat either.   My lawn looks very nice and I get compliments from my neighbors but I've tried to put my mat on the lawn and it's like a bounce house

I use a mat similar to that one (been long enough I can remember where I got it) on my lawn and it works fine. I've practiced on it while wearing my plastic spikes. It's heavy enough that I haven't felt the mat moving under my feet. Keep in mind that, unless you move the mat frequently or pick it up when not in use, it will kill the lawn underneath.

Very true - I have a similar 5x5’ mat that I ended up needing to build a small, level platform for. My yard is unusually bumpy and poorly graded though, so ymmv.

I use a 10" x 30" Country Club Elite® Golf Mat Hitting Strip.  I dug out about 2" of soil so that it sits flush with my lawn and I just stand on the ground when I hit. But I have a 2 acre yard out in the sticks, so no one can really see where I dug it up.

I have a country club elite as well.  It's awesome.

I just bought the Monster mat. It's 5 x 5 and stupid expensive ($328). This is the same mat I've been hitting off for the last year at the range when the grass is closed. Under commercial use they have held up real well and do not leave all that green residue on your irons. I figured that this is one of those items in life where you could try and save a little and live with many regrets or buy it once for life and be satisfied.

They make a model up from this that you can peg a tee into but that cost even more. I just use one of those rubber tees that sit flush with the mat and that will hold a normal wooden tee.

Also if you can't locate locally shipping will run about $50.

I paired the mat with a Range Servant ball tray. Its rubber, not plastic, sits flush with the lip of the mat and is very heavy. It just absolutely will not move unless you move it. It holds about 50 golf balls.

@dmnoland after over a year now, are you happy with the Monster mat?  Positives and negatives?

I’ve been reviewing pretty much every popular mat out there, and just can’t come to a decision.  CCE, Monster, Fiberbuilt, TrueStrike.

@iacas I’d be interested to hear your preference on practice mats, as you’ve probably had a few over the years.  I’ve seen in your videos, it appears you have a TrueStrike and maybe another.

    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
